Having lived in Dallas for 4 years and having our pick of amazing tex-mex restaurants, we were spoiled by the time we moved away. Whenever we have a chance to go back for a visit, we always make time for a meal at Uncle Julio's... who in my humble opinion, have the best chicken fajitas in Texas! The tortillas are... More

We heard about this place from the actor Alan Tudek so we stopped on in and had some amazing food. The fajita and tamales were done very well. Enjoy !!

Full disclosure. My son, Sean, works there, as part of the management staff, and at his invitation I was there on December 31 for a late lunch. I was first of all surprised to see the restaurant half full at 3:30 pm. Mind you this is a cavernous place so easily over 100 people were eating at this hour. This... More

My wife and I had dinner there and we ordered two basic meals and four small house margaritas. The bill with a 20% tip was $95.00!!!! The margaritas were $11 each, which I feel was a ripoff. The food was your basic Tex-Mex and was average at best. The primary reason for the low rating was the excessively high price.... More

Uncle Julio's is in a good location near many shops and restaurants. For a Sunday night it was very busy. Tried to have a nice family dinner but we were seated near a large group that were loud. Service was good. Chips and salsa are served while being seated. Chips were a little greasy and salsa spicy. The cheese enchiladas... More

Stopped for a late lunch. It wasn't crowded but it was loud. The guacamole and tortillas were excellent. All the food was good but those two items really shines. The salsa is good but a little spicy for some of us. Wouldn't hesitate to come again.

There's nothing special about this location. Typical tex mex. The decor is the best part. Service is friendly and the food is decent, but the fajitas have hardly any seasoning. If UJ would add a bit more flavour to their meals I would think differently.

Ate here with the family. One of the better Tex Mex places in Allen. Had some of the soups and traditional dishes. We would go back.

This was our first visit to Uncle Juilo's Allen location. We've been to the Addison (It's there or nearby as all these city limits run together) location many times. It's a favorite of ours for Mexican cuisine. Both locations good food, great service and affordable. Visited after a quick shopping trip to the Allen Outlets.

I went here for dinner with an old friend. I chose a platter from the menu, and the food arrived quickly. I seemed to have ordered a huge meal, but we enjoyed sharing it. The waitress was attentive. My only reservation is that the room was big and left the place in the early evening with a cool atmosphere. Perhaps... More
